Reading with the Spirit - August

facebook cover 1 copy.jpg

Last year we worked through the bible in a year, this year we're still reading Scripture, but in an entirely different way - using an ancient spiritual practice called Lectio Divina.

This involves taking a short passage (approx 10 verses) and reading it slowly, prayerfully and repeatedly. We're not trying to analyse or understand, but instead we're inviting the Holy Spirit to use the words of Scripture to speak to us, today.

Lectio Divina isn't reading Scripture for information; it's listening to God for our transformation.

As before, daily posts will appear on our facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2072806539642564/) with a passage of Scripture we can all use together.

For those not on facebook, a monthly post here will go up including the readings for that month. See August’s below and pick up a flyer with lectio divina instructions at the noticeboards on a Sunday morning.

Sunday 28th July - Giveaway

This Sunday morning we are doing something a little different. We will not be meeting for a service but going out to give people around St Andrews and Cupar a small gift of chocolate buttons. In doing so, we hope to bless people with a touch of God’s radical, self-giving generosity.

Prayer Meeting

facebook event banner.jpg

One of our key values in Kingdom Vineyard is prayer. We believe that everything we do needs be covered in it and we highly value creating space to listen to God and his leading.

Our monthly prayer meeting is time to just that. It will be on Monday 1st July 8-9pm in the Vineyard Centre. Please join us as we gather to spend time with Jesus and cover the work of God in the church and East Fife in prayer. We would love to see you there!


ALL IN : Summer with Kingdom Vineyard

This summer we are going ALL IN for Jesus, growing together in community, faith and mission. We'll look up together - worshipping God and learning more about Him. We'll go out together, to serve our community and demonstrate God's love and we'll gather in together, to have fun and rest as family.

Kingdom Vineyard Pastoral Assistants – An Update!

As many of you know, over the last year we have been blessed with our incredible Pastoral Assistant, Caitlin. Caitlin has been absolutely smashing it in her role these past months, leading her Homegroup alongside the lovely Morag, transforming our KV social media hubs into beautiful masterpieces, organising loads of super-Jesus-filled events for us to enjoy, and way more stuff that most people don’t see, but keeps KV running smoothly!

The super fun news is that this isn’t the end of all the fun Pastoral Assisting stuff!

From July this year, as well as 12 more glorious months of Caitlin’s service to our church (YESSSSSSSSS!), we are also super happy and proud to be taking on Alastair as another Pastoral Assistant - #doubleblessed! Alastair will be focussing a lot on Worship training with our wonderful Worship Pastor, Jesse (if you haven’t been in worship when Al’s been leading before, you need to, it’s already lit), as well as receiving theology and preaching training, and doing all kinds of other fun stuff that will no doubt make us drop everything to throw up our hands to say thank you Jesus AGAIN for the awesome people He’s given us! 

Screenshot 2019-05-02 at 13.26.40.png

And as if that wasn’t all, both Caitlin and Alastair are giving up their time for the next year to work for Kingdom Vineyard, full time, for free. They’ve decided to invest in building God’s kingdom, and growing personally with God, and have given up a year’s income to make it possible. 

We as a church and family are so impressed, and so excited to see what the Lord has planned for these two throughout the next year, and we are so blessed to be able to support their growth through these Pastoral Assistant programmes. In order to do this, however, it does mean that we have to raise some money to cover some of their costs.

Alastair & Caitlin are raising the money that it will cost Kingdom Vineyard to train them, to take them to the events and conferences that will grow them (as well as benefit the church!), and to cover some of their living expenses whilst they’re working for us. For a year’s worth of Caitlin & Alastair’s time, and the training to support them whilst they serve us, it will cost Kingdom Vineyard £3,400 and £3,700 respectively, on top of our normal church running costs. We honestly believe they are well worth the investment.

If you feel a nudge to contribute to these two lovely guys’ funds, or even just would like a nosey at how they’re doing, or their testimonies on why they’re choosing to bless us with their time and hard work next year, you can visit their give.net pages here:

In the mean time, Jesus is Lord, how lucky are we?!

 

Songwriters' Showcase

event banner.jpg

Over the last year, worship leaders in the Kingdom Vineyard have embarked on a journey of writing songs for congregational worship. We'd like to share these brand new songs with you in a relaxed setting, where we'll play our songs and tell the stories behind them, while also sharing our vision for what we believe God wants to do with songwriting in a local church context.

The event is on Saturday 18th May at 7.30pm in the Vineyard Centre.

All are welcome to come and share in this evening of celebrating what God is doing through our music!
